Trivia

The courtroom scenes were filmed at the U.S. Post Office in Covington, Kentucky which was formerly the home of the U.S. District Court See more »

Goofs

The movie starts off in 1969, and Ted Bundy is supposed to be driving a 1968 VW Standard Beetle. However the VW that Bundy drives in the movie is 1973 (or later) Super Beetle. You can tell due to the curved windshield and wide trunk hood which only came on those model years. See more »

Quotes

Ted Bundy: People don't realize that murderers do not come out in the dark with long teeth and saliva dripping off their chin. People don't realize that there are killers among them. People they liked, loved, lived with, work with and admired could the next day turn out to be the most demonic people imaginable

Dont watch the Ted Bundy tapes before.
3 May 2019 | by nokuthulandSee all my reviews

I love the cast but I think if you want to watch the movie dont watch the Ted Bundy tapes 1st. Watch them after then you will like the movie. As I believe it is told mostly from Elizabeth's point of view. I saw the tapes first then the movie. So I kept scrutinizing the whole time or waiting to see scenes that didnt come up here.

Otherwise great work . Zack and Lilly were great as usual.
